In page 44 of the book shown in the link below, kth powered matrices trivially generate either Householder's,Newton's, Halley's and other new highorder iterated functions for approximating roots, at any desired convergence rate k.
No derivatives, no infinitesimal calculus, no cartesian system, but just simple arithmetic.
Were you taught on school on these simple highorder rootapproximating methods?
No?
Yes? Then show any precedent on those methods?
Regards,
